Back in the 90’s, Shaped Music was buying RCF transducers when they were building their own loudspeaker cabinets. 25 years later, they are still using RCF, recently adding an HDL20-A line array system to their inventory.
Shaped Music (www.shapedmusic.com) is a full service event production company based in Ft. Collins, Colorado providing sound, lighting, staging, backline and staffing for events.
“We’ve had a number of different size rigs over the years,” notes owner Richard Werdes. While Shaped Music has L-Acoustics V-DOSC systems in their inventory, “The reason we chose the RCF HDL20 system is because we have a number of mid-line clients who need something better than a club system, but cannot yet afford the major touring array package we offer. It filled a hole for our client needs, filled a market niche and was justifiable for the size of jobs it fits.”
The system is comprised of eight HDL20-A dual 10” two-way active line array modules, coupled with four SUB8006-AS double 18” subwoofers.
“We had been sub-renting other systems to fill this need,” Werdes mentioned. Exploring the market to find the right product, “we have always been impressed with RCF performance, and found the HDL20-A was priced right to fits our needs.” Werdes also noted he recognized the availability of other systems in the region for cross-rental opportunities and when the need would arise for some additional boxes for a larger event. “It’s a great package with our SL100 Stageline stage, Midas consoles and RCF line array.”
He goes on to say, “RCF was so flexible and friendly to work with,” noting how important that is for his business and production needs.
Shaped Music took the system out recently for their client Left Hand Brewery (pictured above).
